First impression, spotless and cosy, and Host Irene being very friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is and ideal location, walking distance to town, stores, ( a little convenience store right on the corner ), bus depot, and railway station.

I forgot my transformer for my tablet, but there was one available, even sunglasses !!

Had a friend who had disappointing accommodations, even had to buy sheets and towels !!

I experienced none of this, everything was spotless and excellent condition.

Everything was as shown in photos, and I'd definitely give it a 5 star, and if I travelled back again, I would love to stay there again, plus recommend it to family and friends.

Thanks again Irene !!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. Janette was a model guest. The flat was in great order when she left. I always feel as my guests are on holiday I like them to feel they are at 'home' in my little house. I also ask for hints from them how I can improve things for others coming along. I look forward to meeting new guests from all around the world..... makes me wish I had used a guest book to remember them all. Thanks again Janette.

This flat is in a central location for exploring the region. Easily accessable, especially by auto. Clean, comfortable, well stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our visit. Irene is the perfect hostess, very personable and helpful with information about the local area. Very pleased with our experience and would definitely book it again.
